The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere.

There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

“Unpopular Opinion: Maybe Harvey Weinstein Should Cut 20 Minutes From Snowpiercer” – Rodrigo Perez at The Playlist makes the case for a saggy movie, defending TWC for wanting to shake off the director’s cut. It’s tough to think of any movie that’s been better served by a studio cut…except maybe Donnie Darko.

“Old News: What were movie fans talking about on February 17, 2004?” – Matt Singer digs up a decade-old story about Kevin Smith directing The Green Hornet and follows what really happened.

“How Creativity Works: Neil Gaiman on Where Ideas Come From” – Ah, Brain Pickings. Thanks for this.
